Yoga Gets Better With AgeBook - 2005
Nothing softens the aging process like yoga! Now, the First Lady of Yoga shows how to add more flexibility, energy, and joy to your life--with her new method of "yin" stretching for the maturing body.
As Americans in their 40s, 50s, and beyond search for ways to increase flexibility, diminish aches and pains, enhance well-being, and slow the aging process, the word is out: yoga does all this and more. But traditional yoga poses and stretches can be a problem for stiffer, less pliable bodies. That is why Lilias Folan--the most beloved and admired American yoga teacher ever--has created "yin" yoga, a specific, safe, and creative way to stretch and strengthen within each yoga posture. The technique, which cannot be found in other yoga works, is at the heart of this book. Some outstanding features include:
o More than 200 photographs of Lilias demonstrating the yoga postures using her innovative techniques
o Lilias, in her trademark soothing and upbeat style, guiding readers along a spiritual path that leads to increased vitality and a higher Self
o Engaging stories of her life's journey from this internationally renowned yoga master and grandmother
Whatever you're looking for at this time of life--wisdom, serenity, meaning, energy, bliss, or simply to feel better--Lilias will show how a mindful practice of yogic principles can help you find it.
